Rural architecture often aims to lay as light a hand as possible on the land, and this Australian house by Max Pritchard Architect is a fine example. Bridge House spans a lush creek, its steel struts gently touching down on either side in an elegant and unobtrusive way. Its design works in harmony with the climate, with a single-room depth that allows for simple cross-ventilation and deep eaves to stave off too much sun. Further sustainability measures include rainwater recovery and both solar hot water and pv panels. The house is part-home, part office space, but I’m not sure I’d get much work done if this was my office: it looks like an excellent spot for watching the sunset, drink in hand, feeling at one with the trees and listening to the creek trickling by beneath.
